Dove Cameron, who played Amber Von Tussle in NBC's live broadcast of Hairspray, will star in The New Group's world premiere of Amy Heckerling's Clueless, The Musical, based on her 1995 film of the same name.
Like the Alicia Silverstone-led film, the musical concerns Cher (Cameron), a girl so optimistic she can’t see that her bungling attempts at playing Cupid disguise her own fashion-plated isolation.
Cameron will be joined by Ephie Aardema as Tai, Lori Alan as Miss Geist/Ms. Stoeger, Sara Andreas as Heather, Gilbert L. Bailey II as Murray, Will Connolly as Travis, Tiffany Engen (Swing), Katie Goffman (Swing), Danielle Marie Gonzalez as Lucy, Tessa Grady as Amber, Talya Groves (Ensemble), Chris Hoch as Mel/Mr. Hall/DMV Instructor, L'ogan J'ones as Max, Jeff Kuhr (Swing), Darius Jordan Lee as Sean, Justin Mortelliti as Christian, Brett Thiele (Ensemble), Dave Thomas Brown as Josh, and Zurin Villanueva as Dionne.
Cameron, whose credits also include Disney Channel's Descendants movies, won a 2018 Daytime Emmy Award for her work in Disney Channel's Liv and Maddie. She also appeared as Sophie in the Hollywood Bowl's 2017 presentation of Mamma Mia!
Directed by Kristin Hanggi with choreography by Kelly Devine, the production will begin November 20, open December 11, and continue through January 12, 2019, in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center.
The production will also have scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Amy Clark, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design by Gareth Owen, projection design by Darrel Maloney, music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp, and music direction by Matthew Smedal. Casting is by Tara Rubin Casting. The production stage manager is Mary MacLeod.
